If you knew me outside of the blogging world, you would know that I love America! I will literally bore you to death on any related subject, but in particular: New York City (my favourite place in the whole world), Texas (my next visit when I’ve saved the pennies), the weather, the accents, driving, pick up trucks, food, front porches! Once I start you can’t shut me up, honestly people have tried!
So I always do something to celebrate the 4th of July (to pretty much pretend I’m back there) and this year I thought I’d try American Pie, but obviously this is Sweet Petite so I give you….mini pies!!
I couldn’t decide whether to try blueberry or cherry, then it hit me, make both and you’ll have Red, White (ish!) and Blue! Pretty cool if I do say so myself!!
I used this recipe from Channel 4 for the cherry pies and for the blueberry pie I used this recipe from the Hungry Mouse. Instead of the full pie I used a cupcake tin and cut fluted circles out, added the filling and then topped the blueberries with stars and cherries with stripes.
OK, so the blue isn’t really that blue when they’re cooked, and the stripes kind of look like cheese straws but you get the idea!! What do you think? Do any other non-Americans celebrate the 4th of July or is it just me?
My lack of posts recently is due to the fact that I’ve had quite a few customer orders in recent weeks (yay!) but I have sooooo many ideas that I want to show you all which means that I’ll be back very soon, so stay tuned 🙂
Happy 4th of July if you’re celebrating, if you’re not………. Happy FRIDAY!!!
